Victoria Falls replica at 1939 World's Fair

Robyn Miller has images and information about Rhodesia's fantastic entry to the 1939 World's Fair.
Picture 9-2 They put Victoria Falls in a huge room (or a scale creation of it) pumping 60,000 gallons of water over the edge per minute! But it came to a sad end, due to nearby "depraved" activities (at the fair).

The Southern Rhodesians got really really mad! The reputation of their great wonder was being sullied – lowered to the height of mere eroticism... "Where's Victoria?" the visitors began to ask, "We want her, we want to see the voluptuous but seductive Victoria... from Rhodesia!"
